About this talk

Infrastructure management in 2020 is a different game to the one it was in previous decades. In 2020, automation is the key differentiator, making waves across data center software and hardware and bringing in the ability to automatically detect and monitor connectivity, document the presence of network devices, update records with any modifications - and much more. This intelligent approach to the data center is fast becoming mission-critical, but there are challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure the approach taken is the right one. Join this panel of experts as they discuss these automation infrastructure challenges and how to overcome them, including: - How data scale and edge-to-core data center architectures impact automation management strategies - How to overcome the hurdle of integrating DCIM automation tools - How to ensure automation management is a benefit to data center teams, not a threat Speakers: Alex Peay, Senior Vice President of Product, SaltStack (Moderator) John Gentry, CTO, Virtana Nital Gandhi, Founder, BOIT Consulting Craig Theriac, Director of Product Management, Scale Computing
